Mitch McConnell Defers Consideration of Senate Healthcare Bill Until Return of John McCain after Blood Clot Procedure

Washington Examiner

by Daniel Chaitin



The Senate will defer consideration of the GOP healthcare plan that would partially repeal and replace Obamacare until Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., returns to work following a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement late Saturday. After wishing him a "speedy recovery," McConnell, R-Ky., added: "While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act." About two hours earlier, McCain´s office revealed that he would be spending a week in his home state …

    McConnell never intended to get rid of Obamacare "root and branch". This Kabuki Theater is another production meant to distract from his real intention of doing nothing. Republicans were given an assignment seven years ago on which they should have been diligently working. Instead, they procrastinated because like a irresponsible middle school child, they did not want to do it. The date has arrived and the assignment is due. These children have nothing of value to turn in so they use McCain´s surgery to try and cover their for their complete lack of responsibility toward the American people. We´re not buying it. We know willful incompetence when we see it.

    When they had the House they said they needed the Senate. When we gave them the Senate they said they needed the Presidency. Now they need a 2/3 majority. It´s all a lie, they never intended to do anything and never expected to have to.

    I would have thought that flying was not allowed if you were diagnosed with a blood clot, especially that close to the brain.

    If this was not an emergency, then McConnell should not have postponed this vote. But then could it be that without McCain he doesn´t have enough votes?

    The G.O.P., possessing a majority in both houses of Congress, are all that stand in the way of President Donald J. Trump's agenda, and that slimy scumbag McCain is the prime saboteur. He is a snake in the grass, a mountebank.

    True, that Schumer character is an unctuous sneak and the most shameless peddler of deceit, but the Republicans, with two-faced devils like John McCain, are the most dangerous DC swamp creatures. Too stupid to create anything, all they know how to do is destroy.

    McCain’s Surgery May Be More Serious Than Thought, Experts Say

    By DENISE GRADY and ROBERT PEAR

    JULY 16, 2017

    Senator John McCain of Arizona last week on Capitol Hill. He had surgery on Friday to remove a blood clot. Credit Jacquelyn Martin/Associated Press
    The condition for which Senator John McCain had surgery on Friday may be more serious than initial descriptions have implied, and it may delay his return to Washington by at least a week or two, medical experts said on Sunday.

    The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, has already announced that votes on a bill to dismantle the Affordable Care Act will not begin until Mr. McCain’s return. A statement released by Mr. McCain’s office on Saturday had suggested that he would be in Arizona recovering for just this week, but neurosurgeons interviewed said the typical recovery period could be longer. ...

    Doesn't this strike you as just a wee bit too convemient for the GOP's ncreasingly obvious STYMIE TRUMP at ALL COSTS agenda?

    The questions we need to discuss in hope of finding answers are

    1. WHY is the GOP so determined to COMMIT SUICIDE?

    2. Is the GOP really the GOP anymore, or has it become the DEMOCRATS' SECRET WEAPON?

    3. WHO or WHAT is REALLY governing our country?

  13. FreeThinke,

    You seem to be implying that the GOP Senate doesn't want to pass this bill, that they are crypto-Democrat Statists, and they are engaging in deception to avoid an honest vote... and I'd say as usual, you instincts are probably right.


    I said this at AOW's in a non-political post, and I shall repeat it here, with your indulgence:

    Watching the GOOP liars and chiselers squirm and flail, I can't help but be amused at witnessing slimy reptilian politicians impaled upon their own talking points.

    The GOOP politicians are immolating themselves on a pyre of their worthless campaign slogans and broken promises.

      Donald Trump represents REFORM and CHANGE. Apparently, that's the very last thing the Washingturd Cartel desires.

      I wish I could see humor in the situation, but Alas! I cannot.

      The now-four Republicans senators who refuse to support the "new" Shuck and Jive Healthcare Bill, are HEROIC in my opinion. Those members of the GOP who refuse to "go along to get along" are our ONLY hope.

      What would be the point of "passing" legislation which would only be the moral equivalent of passing gas?

    4. The hypocrisy in your howling rant somewhat defeats your very own request of constructive argument.

      While I'll not predudicly accuse you, as you do me, of being a blind political hack and marching firmly to some partisan agenda (something you don't know or could not know as I've never made such claims publicly or in writing) but your unhinged gibberish and frothing unfounded claims sound oh so familiar.

      In the meantime, the reason repealing ACA is so difficult is because it has been so successful or, considered far more successful than the secritve scam presented to us by today's so-called conservatives to be signed by a serial lying, racist, self proclaimed sexually assaulting, egomaniac con man in the White House (regardless of what party the disgusting son of a bitch belongs to).

      Delete
    5. Repealing the ACA is so difficult, Ronald, because it was codified into LAW –– without permitting any debate as to its merits by the opposition –– and, without permitting any amendments. This ill-conceived, poorly-crafted legislation was forced through congress by a majority party so ignoble and so drunk on power they didn't even bother to READ the BILL befire they railroaded it through congress in the dead of night on CHRISTMAS EVE.

      This, of course, is the party that most easily gets votes by deceiving gullible Have-Nots into believing they are voting for a perfect amalgam of both SANTA CLAUS and ROBIN HOOD.

      Unfortunately the growing numbers who want to believe in this bilge are basically INFANTILE, and so once they believe something has been GIVEN to them, they scream with indignation and bang on their metaphorical high chairs like the babies they are when some "bad men" tr to take their "legislative candy" away.

      The spineless wimps in the GOP are so deathly afraid of being accused ot "taking candy away from a poor, innocent little baby," they ACQUIESCE to the despicable legislation, because they don't want to be seen as a bunch of OGRES.

      And THAT is preciesly HOW and WHY things are the way they are.

      When people have been conditioned to become so childish, dependent ad irresponsible as to expect their government to act as both ROBIN HOOD and SANTA CLAUS, a FAILED STATE looms large on the horizon.

    6. FreeThinke, your anaylisis of how ACA was legislated is far from consistent with facts. Those debunked Sean Hannity memes have come to surface lately in many discussions due to this ramming through of the secretive TrumpCare scam (not that we didn't already know this).

      For starters, Obama and Dems won by campaigning on health care reform. ACA was debated for almost 2 years in open while TrumpCare saw at best a few days in a closet room with Dems and the public banner. ACA saw 100s of hours of debate while TrumpCare saw zero. ACA saw over 100 committee hearings while TrumpCare again, saw 0. ACA saw 171 admendments, mainly from Republicans, while TC got zip. Dems weren't even invited to see what was being discussed (nor was the public). The AMA and most every single medical group hated it. Not a single governor wanted it. And keep in mind, this move reflects on just under 20% of the economy.

      And the more that we learned from this scam, the more we found out how destructive and dishonest it was. After lie after lie from Trump and Pence, it would destroy medicaid, it would throw multi-millions out of the healthcare system, premiums would go up considerably for many, pre-existing conditions would again be a factor, and it would be a huge tax break for the most wealthy.

      Yet despite all of this, had just a few more we're strongarmed into it, Trump would have already signed it. He was ready to break his most sacred campaign promises and then just lie about how he kept them

      Now I can understand how you might agree with much of TrumpCare (not that I agree with you by any stretch but I understand that arguement) but the premise of your argument seems to not be on the content of the bill but rather how it was so horribly legislated by Dems (which is blatantly false) and that for some reason Rs deserve a pass on their legislative tactics.

      Its hard to phantom your rationale.

    The GEE OH PEE runs everything, including most of the states. It's a good thing they are too stupid or too cowardly to bust a major move.

    They could, like file lawsuits from the states to the federal government on all kinds of issues, and then then Trumpotang's regime could simply refuse to defend the federal government.

    They could totally change the nation's political landscape: Unemployment, health care, federal regulations. There is no end to what they could do if they only had the brains and balls of the Democrats.

    FreeThinke is onto it. The GOP talks all kind of crap about free markets, low taxes, small government, cutting taxes and family values, but they are fat hypocritical pigs.

    El Trumpo keeps blaming Democrats LOL Ha Ha Ha, every time the Gee Oh Pee (who controlls all of congress) craps their pants. LOL! The GEE OH PEE controls EVERYTHING, but they can get NOTHING Done!

    Oh wait! They did preserve Obamacare, endorse President Obama's Iran deal, continue to bring in refugees, and expand the H1B and H2B Visa programs. Homeland Sec Kelly just announced we are bringing in 15,000 more workers under the H2B Visa program. MAGA!

    When the poor working class people realize how badly Don the Dick and his band of Gee Oh Pee sodomites anally raped them, they are going to be righteously pissed.

  18. Well, FreeThinke old friend, we expected this, didn't we?

    The Swamp is draining El Donaldo.

    If the Democrats could get their vulgar, loony left fringers to tamp down their violent, mouth-foaming rants, they could make some big gains in the mid-terms.

    I don't see the GOOP getting much done besides perhaps tax cuts for the rich.

    If the GOP can't leverage this historic opportunity to move President Trump's agenda, they're toast, including One-Term Donald.

    The mountain West is increasingly demographically dominated by a handful of teeming urban centers.

    It's a shame, really. Conservatism, as eloquently enunciated by Russell Kirk, is a beautiful philosophy grounded in brute reality and a wise weather eye on unchangeable human nature.

    Too bad nobody in the GOOP has even a passing familiarity with it. Too bad nobody in the GOOP knows how to advance conservatism by putting it into practice and allowing its flowering successes to sell itself.

    My only consolation will be sitting back as an old man and laughing as I watch the millennials and their progressive fellow travelers--who have been screaming for socialism--get it good and hard. Someobody's going to have to work and pay all those taxes.

    It certainly is more likely that the figurative hell will freeze over before highly partisan conservatives and highly partisan liberals will ever come to the bipartisan table to resolve the nation's issues

    This is unfortunate. Unless the possibility of compromise is always on the table for intelligent reasonable folks to consider and take action on the winner take all mindset wins. And, America loses.
